In fact, the only area in which any color can be found is underneath the sapphire crystal on the dial, whose Arabic numerals, minute markers, and hands are all in stark white and coated with Super-Luminova. This is a pilot’s watch after all, so it’s ready to be read at a moment’s notice with a quick glance. The only other colors that exist on this watch are red (on the anti-shock logo under the pinion, and on the tip of the lollipop seconds hand) and orange (striated on a loop that serves as the counterbalance on the seconds hand). The counterbalance reminds me of a little missile targeting system spinning around the dial.
Now, you’ll need a great fit if you want to go parachuting behind enemy lines with the black void of night serving as your only cover. For that Bremont has given us a bi-material strap, aptly named the Chalgrove strap after Martin-Baker’s site at Chalgrove airfield in Oxfordshire. The strap is made of leather and rubber, providing a snug and lightweight fit to anyone who would don this hyper-tooly and stealthy pilot’s watch.
The retail price on this limited MBIII is $5,450. It’s available to order now through the Bremont website, with delivery expected in January. Bremont
